Learn About the Citizenship and Integration Grant Program
Since 2009, the Citizenship and Integration Grant Program has been a part of a multifaceted effort to provide citizenship preparation resources, support, and information to immigrants and immigrant-serving organizations.
The program has awarded more than $112 million through 513 competitive grants to immigrant-serving organizations in 39 states and the District of Columbia. The program has helped more than 290,000 lawful permanent residents (LPRs) prepare for U.S. citizenship.
The main goal of the grant program has generally been to provide citizenship instruction and application assistance to LPRs. Recipients of the Citizenship and Integration Grant Program have included various types of organizations such as community and faith-based groups, public libraries, and adult education and literacy organizations.
In some years, additional opportunities have been afforded to nonprofit organizations that established new citizenship instruction programs, expanded the quality and reach of their existing citizenship instruction programs, or provided ongoing integration services to LPRs who have entered the United States. In addition, the grant program has awarded grants to members or affiliates of national organizations that provided citizenship preparation services in communities across the country to build capacity throughout the United States. 
Note: The specific types of funding opportunities may change during each new funding year.
